The main battle across the year has been the fight for third in the constructors' championship, a battle Racing Point currently leads by five points from McLaren.
The Bahrain circuit holds positive memories for Perez, as he finished third in just his third race for the team, then Force India, and he recalled: “It was a very special moment in my career.
"It’s incredible to think it happened in only my third race with the team. It’s amazing to think that we’ve scored five more podiums together since that day. It’s always a great feeling to revisit the circuit and remember 2014.”
